Backtrack Metasploit Megaprimer

The Metasploit Framework included with the Backtrack series is an amazing platform for penetration and security testing. The capabilities are just stunning.

The problem is the learning curve can be kind of steep, especially for new users.

There are many video training tutorials out there and Offensive Security even offers the free “Metasploit Unleashed” training which is very good.

But it would be nice to have a comprehensive video series that starts with the very basics of Metasploit and leads you through the entire platform to the more advanced features.

Look no further than Vivek Ramachandran’s “Metasploit Megaprimer” video series. Vivek has created a huge training session on Metasploit spanning almost 20 videos.

The training is top notch, and very easy to follow.

Some of the topics covered include:

  • Meterpreter Basics and Using Stdapi
  • Meterpreter Extensions
  • Database Integration
  • Post Exploitation Kung Fu
  • Post Exploitation Privilege Escalation
  • Backdoors, Pivoting, Port Forwarding and much, much, more!

I had the absolute honor of working with Vivek as a technical editor on his just released book “BackTrack 5 Wireless Penetration Testing Beginner’s Guide“.

He is one of the top security experts of India, has spoken at numerous security conferences, and runs the very popular website “SecurityTube”.

Vivek has an amazing ability to take very complex ideas and breaking them down into very easy to understand lessons.

If you are new to Metasploit, or want to learn more about it, check out the Metasploit Megaprimer. It will be time well spent!
